Scotland Vote Result Is To Stay In U.K., Twitter Reacts [Photos]

Scotland vote result is to stay in U.K.

In a historic vote, Scotland decided to stay as part of the U.K. by a majority of 55 percent. The unprecedented referendum had many British citizens, including Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister David Cameron, worried that if the country decided to break away it would affect the Commonwealth in a negative way.

Now those who wanted to remain as part of the U.K. are breathing a sigh of relief, while the movement that started it all, has to put their grievances aside and hope that the mother land will take them seriously.

As the Scotland vote results started to come in and became official, social media was the first place people went, to hear all about the conclusion to the referendum

Twitter has been a good spot to gauge the latest reactions to the Scotland vote results and there is no shortage of inspiring photos on the Scotland vote results. Here are some of the most interesting ones.

Cool heads prevailed even though tensions were high on both sides, but in the end Scotland decided to vote “no” and stay in the U.K. The referendum is reported to have been attended by 86 percent of residents, an unprecedented turnout by all accounts, and the Scottish Prime Minister has resigned following the result. We will have to see what is in store for the country’s future but in the meantime, you can find more cool photos on Twitter.
